<p data-identifyelement="500" dir="ltr">&nbsp; &nbsp; Using Photo Mechanic Plus to move folders will help ensure Catalogs path to those folders is accurate. Occasionally however, you might rearrange files and folders outside of Photo Mechanic Plus by using another program, such as macOS Finder or Windows Explorer. In that case, you will need to update their location in your catalogs the next time you use Photo Mechanic Plus.</p>
